Matthew Coll is a contemporary artist based in Dublin, Ireland. He is currently studying Fine Art Painting in NCAD. His work is primarily concerned with the exploration of the process of painting. Often varying his approach to painting from very controlled and considerate to quite spontaneous and instinctive. Sometimes pouring water over a painting or dragging paint across the surface. Creating an uncertainty in how the painting will turn out. Exploring this tension between trying to get most out of a painting, at the risk potentially ruining it.
